Here are some pictures of my completed Crashed Aquila Lander from the Battle For Macragge 40k boxset.
I really like this as a scenery kit, it doesn’t give much line of sight blocking (which is very important in the latest edition) but it’s a very thematic kit and great for telling a narrative.
I chose to base my Crashed Aquila Lander on the colour scheme used in the Black Library graphic novel: Exterminatus
Available from here:
The ground, dust and rocks were painted using the same colours and techniques that I used to paint The Broken Aquila and the Moonscape Craters. Once everything had been painted on the Lander itself, I made sure to dry brush over the ship with Steel Legion Drab (while dry brushing the earth parts) to give it a dusty look.

Very nice work! I’ve never owned one of these, but it has always looked like a great piece to add to any battlefield.
Thank you and thanks for checking out my blog. The crashed Lander is the reason I bought a copy of Battle for Macragge on eBay. I had missed this set upon my return to the hobby.
Awesome, thanks. Got 2 crash kit, so might start one in red, as it’s the real ship color from what I saw!
hi, nice job. do you remember what’s the red? thanks
Hi Erdi, Thanks for reading.
I only paint with Citadel paints so the red is mostly Mephiston Red with the odd panel painted in Khorne Red.
